Just Roll With It


Feel like you’ve been dealt a bad hand of cards lately? You’re not alone! We’re all experiencing some pretty big blows right now — whether you can’t see or hug loved ones, have had to cancel a special event, aren’t able to travel this summer … and on and on. 

Yep, to say 2020 has been a rough one is a complete and total understatement. 

So how do we deal with all the punches being thrown our way? It’s time to start working on rolling with the punches. 

When a letdown happens, first start by acknowledging it. Say it out loud, write it down, allow yourself to feel the frustration or sadness for as long as you need in the moment. 

Next, make a decision. Choose to get outside for a walk, call a friend, meditate for 20 minutes — do something you know is a healthy way to cope and release some of those pent-up feelings.

Finally, say — and repeat — words that can help strengthen your resilience. Maybe something like, “this new direction will lead me to an even better path,” or “I know I can handle this.” 

If you start to feel another punch, repeat the steps again (starting with the acknowledgment).

While we know this year isn’t what any of us had planned, it can still be one that surprises us in interesting ways — revealing just how resilient we really are. 

You’re amazing and we know you can handle whatever comes your way. And there are always silver linings to be found.

P.S. A glass of wine can help, too. 😉

These days, many of us are so pressed for time that we give ourselves few moments to do what actually excites us. But even if your day feels impossibly stuffed, you can make time for what really matters.

Sounds nice, but how, you may be wondering? I’m so happy you asked!

You Are Enough, Right Now

You Are Enough, Right Now

Some days you may feel like you’re not good enough, or doing enough. You may wish you could snap your fingers and turn into a version of yourself you think you should be with a perfect job, spotless house, and exciting hobbies (or whatever your definition of an ideal life may be).  

But here’s something you need to know … You are wonderful, just as you are. You are enough, right now.

A Less Stress Summer

A Less Stress Summer

Summer is synonymous with relaxation, but sometimes we find ourselves stressed out and not living our best, “feet in the sand, good book in hand,” season.
